these things technologically. it goes to education, stem core and all those things we have to do. but in additioned to that we have to incentivize those companies to keep them here. whatever we have to do to the tax code and whatever it may be, it makes more sense for these 26 million people to get them back working create economic activity here in america instead cargo ships that are coming, these super tankers from china korea, japan they're coming every day to the port of los angeles bringing those products. we've got to stop that. how do you figure on getting those 26 million people back to work. you know it, it's really shameful what is going on in american politics. it's so negative and so nasty and the bottom line, things aren't getting done. we have to get things done. >> gavin: here's to getting things done, governor. >> okay, lieutenant governor. >> gavin: when he's not busy forming for the queen of england, new fashions, new technology he's out promoting the obama campaign. find out why about the front line getting people out to vote. granholm, spitzer, and vice presid
